KADAVU - Week 12

Bula Vinaka!
Another week has flown by! It was a great one! Things are really feeling great in our area. Church has been improving SO much, and the spirit is just so strong! It was also a really HOT week, and I've been working on my tan. ;) 

So last night we received transfer calls! My companion, Elder Feliua'i Lene will be leaving Kadavu, so that's a bummer. We've become way good friends, and I hope I'll see him around the mission later. I'm actually not quite sure who my new companion is yet, it'll be someone brand new from the MTC. I'm excited! It'll be really fun to meet someone new and try to teach them how to be a missionary and the Fijian language! I'm also looking forward to going into Suva to pick up the new missionary! It means I'll get some way nice lunch! Haha. I'm super stoked for all the things to come!

In other news, the mission is witnessing miracles! For each month we set a mission goal for the amount of people we want to bring closer to Heavenly Father through baptism. This month we were 12 away from our mission goal with only 3 days left. So it seemed like we weren't going to hit it. But then, the Lord provided a miracle and in one area 12 people asked to be baptized. So we hit our goal exactly! It is amazing to see what the Lord will do for those in His service. I've seen it many times in my mission - people happening to sit on the same bus as the missionaries, the missionaries happening to knock on the door of a woman who's husband just passed away and needs consolation, and countless other ways that the Lord prepares people for us to teach. I testify that this is truly God's work.

Well, I think that's about it! Thanks for everything! I love you all and hope all is well! Until next week, keep on keepin' on!
Au lomani kemuni!
